    Hi everyone, I am thinking of investing in a pair of badminton shoes, but I do not have the cash for those top end models that cost hundreds and doesn't last..

    I'm looking for some durable and good badminton shoes that can last.. a good budget range would be <$50..

    Currently using a pair of asics running shoe to play badminton, haha :)

    Would love to have some suggestion/recommendation, thanks a lot :)

    They sell good priced shoes. I had my victor vt-71 (might be different number) for a good few years (3-4). It sometimes is slippery, I'm not sure if its due to how long I worn it for or the shoe; but thats what the towels are for! Also, the cushioning isn't great, but you can compensate by getting insoles.

    I had a few people who said the kasons were adequate too.

    It's really quite difficult to get a durable and good badminton shoes for $50....perhaps abt $70-80 u can try some mizuno shoes which is really lasting and have good cushioning.....for <$50 i would suggest u go JB and look out for some protech/apacs/yone shoes models that actually imitate those high-end Yonex models....but of course quality not as good as those high-end models...try not to buy those low-end <$50 Yonex shoes....confirmed open mouth very fast 1....hehe

    Hmm, I'll try looking for them in sportslink, how can you tell if a pair of shoes is a badminton shoes? are there any specific model range that I should look for?
